"A life-affirming debut"

This perfect, quirky summer page-turner follows Andrew, who’s trying to hide the lie of his life — that he has 2.4 children and a perfect wife. As he spirals out of control pretending to be something he’s not and is overcome with loneliness, your heart will break. A life-affirming debut.

"Endearing and delightful"

Andrew started his new job, he told his work colleagues about the wife and 2.4 children he had at home - except he lied, and now, he's about to be caught out. But maybe this is what he needs to learn how to really live and be happy. Endearing and delightful.
